Returning an XML Encoded String in .NET



XML is not as popular as it once was, but there's still a lot of XML based configuration and data floating around today. Today I ran into a recurring issue where I needed to convert a string to a properly encoded XML string. Seems simple enough but it's not as straightforward as you might think to generate an XML Encoded string properly. This post shows a few different ways to retrieve a string and discusses advantages of each.

Creating a .NET Global Tool from an existing Console Application



.NET Core doesn't support creating executables directly, but it does have support for **Global Tools** which provide a mechanism to register a console application and make it easily accessible using a simple command line command rather than a complex `dotnet.exe` command.

Creating an HTML Packager



Recently I needed to add the ability to save HTML documents in Markdown Monster. Saving raw rendered Markdown is not really sufficient and so I set out to create an HTML packager that can package an HTML Web endpoint into a self-contained local package either as a single self-contained file, or an HTML document with all dependencies localized. In this post I discuss why this is needed and how to implement and use this library to capture HTML output in a few different ways.
